Project Description
“Reconquering a brownfield coastline for ensuring the social and economic rebound of the entire agglomeration of Sfax” The governorate of Sfax occupies a privileged geographical position between the centre and the south of Tunisia, with a wide opening on the Mediterranean: a coast of 200 km. At the edge of the southern regions, but open to the sea, having preserved a beautiful Medina surrounded by ramparts, it has an authenticity that gives it a special attraction. Sfax – 450 000 inhabitants is the second largest city in Tunisia and the most important industrial and commercial centre in the south of the country. City of the phosphate industry, it suffered from a strong pollution which hindered the development of a diversified economic base. The Taparura project is to clean up the northern area of the city of Sfax, in order to promote a highly structuring urban development on areas gained from the sea through successive embankments. The project, whose area of intervention covers 420 hectares, already supported cleaning up six kilometres of brownfields beaches, create tourist areas, residential, public facilities and green spaces. The area of the project is that of the coastal plain of the city of Sfax which extends for 6 km from the commercial port to the South, to the summer theatre of Sidi Mansour in the North, it is bounded by the Mediterranean Sea to the East and the industrial zone "Powder magazine 1 and 2" and popular neighbourhoods in the West, The total area of the area is 420 ha including 280 ha suitable for conversion which represents an important land reserve for the city of Sfax allowing the creation of a metropolitan urban pole and the restoration of the coastal and seaside activities.
